Creating a Business Transformation
April 27 | 10 a.m.
Often companies develop a strategy, then just wait to see it in action. Lackluster results soon follow. Fully optimizing an organization takes holistic leadership and a process that engages all levels of business.
Join us for this webinar where we help you understand that business transitions take more than just one boss making decisions. We’ll explain how to build a “Guiding Coalition” of employees that can oversee strategy development and eventually reach the desired culture. This session is an overview of our deeper “business transformation” one-day workshop, which follows John Kotter’s model of leading transformational change to drive measurable results when aligned to a strategy-to-action plan.
While developed to achieve an ideal corporate strategy, it is a process useful for any kind of change effort. This method can be used when an organization is not meeting its goals or to help drive a sense of urgency. Let us help you turn your team into transformational leaders.
Aligning Structure to Achieve Strategy
May 11 | 10 a.m.
Join us for this brief overview of our new program, “Aligning Structure to Achieve Strategy.” In this online session, we’ll help participants understand the three common organizational structures: functional, product, and geographic. These structures are determined by the organization’s mission, the corporate direction, and the products and services provided.
Rarely do organizations align the structure to the strategy they are trying to achieve, choosing to continue with their same “operating model.” We’ll offer a glimpse of our process where we help your leadership team reexamines its tactics and operating model to verify all are directly aligned to the organization’s strategy. In the end, the result is a clearly defined operating model that has direct alignment to the strategy, objectives, and deliverables of your company.
You’ll learn about important next steps after this alignment, which can further develop the accountabilities, metrics, and decision making in your organization.
Single Point Accountability and Decision Making
May 25 | 10 a.m.
Low performance is most often a direct result of not having clearly defined expectations and team members not knowing how they are measured. Join us for this webinar where we offer a quick look at our new and effective program, “Single Point Accountability and Decision Making.” You’ll get a look at how we can help you engage this tool through an organizational mapping process. Your company’s current state is examined, and we show you how to use this map to remove reporting and decision-making confusion.
The accountability mapping process optimizes your reporting structure for all employees, developing key accountabilities for each leadership position and developing individual performance metrics. You’ll see how the outcome is a future state organizational structure that ensures no roles overlap. Confusion of expectations is removed and an optimized alignment directed toward business objectives is created.
Optimizing Leader Performance
June 10 | 10 am.
One of the best indicators of a company’s performance is the ability of leaders to inspire and engage their employees. Join us for this succinct webinar where we show you that real inspiration flows from an ongoing set of activities to direct, guide, and build engaged thinkers throughout your organization.
You’ll better understand how to help your team use knowledge, skills, and abilities to systematically eliminate waste and solve problems in their own processes. That, in turn, will help the business efficiently meet its objectives. By creating “leader’s standard work,” you’ll develop a process to fully engage all employees as leaders. This overview of our full one-day workshop offers a look at the various leader’s standard work templates and how they can be customized for your specific organization’s goals and metrics.
Optimizing Tactical Performance
June 24 | 10 a.m.
The Visual Management System is an operations management program that helps your company meet its strategic and production goals by easily dealing with constraints. It is a communication and collaboration process that aligns all roles in the organization to the company’s objectives of production, quality, and on-time delivery.
Join us for this brief webinar where we will offer a concise overview of our “Optimizing Tactical Performance” program. Our proprietary Visual Management System provides a physical tool that identifies, tracks, and communicates goals of individuals, departments, and the company. VMS identifies constraints to goals, then assigns the problems to those who can remove the obstacles.
VMS—often called a huddle—can be used anywhere in the business, but is most often utilized on the production floor at the beginning of each shift. Our quick online session will offer a glimpse of how production workers and supervisors can meet around a customized white board where goals, barriers, and actual results are posted. You’ll see how it all provides an information center where employees can easily view the state of production.
Transformational Performance Measures
July 8 | 10 a.m.
We all use metrics to drive improvements and to help focus people and resources on what’s important. But there is seemingly an endless range of benchmarks that companies can utilize. Join us for this webinar where we review our new program, “Transformational Performance Measures.”
This quick overview offers a look at the most important measures, from those that are mandatory—for legal, safety or contractual purposes—to those that track increases in efficiency, reductions in complaints, greater profits, and better savings. You’ll better understand how the best metrics support your strategies and priorities throughout the entire organization. We’ll offer insights on the best most meaningful measures for finance, marketing, competition, standards, customer requirements, and other expectations.
